Chapter Text

Hoseok yawns, tired already with his walk in the wood. The moon is shining brightly and it's surely an hour after midnight, or maybe even later. He should have come back long ago but the suffocating atmosphere that Namjoon created made him both tired and irritated. He wanted to ignore it but he figured that a walk would be much better solution and here he is, in his wolf form. Even if he feels sleepy, and he knows he shouldn't fall asleep here if he doesn't want to worry his pack, he can't go home just yet. Something in the forest is strangely comforting and Hoseok wants to be here for a little while longer.

 

Also, it's a good opportunity to think.

 

Hoseok hardly ever cares. He only does when he has to, and it's mostly when there's something wrong with any of the members of the pack. But other than that, Hoseok is calm and he doesn't even try to be concerned about anything. He knows there's no point in it so he doesn't even try to force himself to think about things that aren't worth his special attention. But strangely, after recent happenings, Hoseok finds himself spending quite a lot of time on thinking about that one thing.

 

Even if everyone had known about it before, when Yoongi and Taehyung announced their mating Hoseok was surprised. He should have expected that but still there was this weird feeling in his heart, and to Hoseok's dismay, it wasn't only happiness. He felt kind of disappointed. And Hoseok didn't like it because he loved both of the now newly mated wolves as if they were his real brothers and he wanted them to be happy, that's why he has never understood what it is.

 

Although Hoseok can't deny the fact that he does feel a little lonely.

 

He felt the same when Jimin and Seokjin told everyone about their pups, although it wasn't this bad. Ever since Jimin got pregnant Hoseok couldn't help but think how it would be, to have a mate. And to be able to have a family with this mate, but he has been hiding this feeling for a long time. Just tonight, when Yoongi and Taehyung finally mated, it has started to bother him more than usually, and Hoseok doesn't want to feel this way. It makes him feel guilty.

 

Before Hoseok can think even more about it, he suddenly hears a rustle. Hoseok stops immediately in his tracks, paying his maximal attention to the rustle, listening to any weird sounds that may appear, but there's nothing more. It's probably a hare but Hoseok doesn't let his guard off, just in case. When nothing else happens in the next minutes Hoseok takes the next steps, slowly and carefully, still wary of anything that may happen. Just as he is about to relax, a smell reaches his nostrils and he stiffens.

 

He knows this smell.

 

...or not really.

 

It's weird, the scent is kind of familiar but Hoseok isn't sure who it belongs to. There's another rustle and suddenly the realisation hits him. It's another wolf. And judging by the intensity of the scent, the wolf is not alone.

 

The alpha curses mentally. The wolves certainly aren't from his pack and the territory belongs to Namjoon, he's sure that the other wolves can sense it's already occupied. It should make no sense that they are wandering around on the occupied ground, but there is one reason that Hoseok can think of as to why they're not even trying to leave.

 

They want to have this territory as well.

 

He needs to return, now. Hoseok tries to be as quiet as possible when he hears the rustling once again, much nearer this time and the scent is even stronger. They are coming closer to Hoseok and the alpha realises that there's probably no point in hiding anymore, they've noticed him and realised he's alone so they're coming after him. What idiots do they have to be to want to attack a member of a pack that owns this territory?

 

Hoseok runs immediately. He has no idea what is going on as it's the first time when anyone has entered their ground but no matter what, even if there are several wolves against him alone, Hoseok still knows this part of the wood better than them. He knows all the spots where he can lead the wolves to and hide himself, so he would stay safe and at the same time, not show the disturbers his home where the rest of his pack is right now.

 

When he hears that the wolves are chasing him, he isn't surprised, he would be an idiot if he were. But it doesn't mean he likes the situation any better as he quickens his pace. He's so fast that instead of trees he sees only green blurs and he knows it won't be long now until he finally finds that place.

 

What Hoseok doesn't expect is a sudden collision. Something, a massive body, hits him with great force taking him by surprise, making him fall painfully on the ground. Hoseok is surprised but he's not hurt, as he stands up almost immediately after realising what has happened, only to see two wolves standing in front of him. Even if moon is the only source of light right now, Hoseok can see the white fur of the bigger wolf, standing closer to him. More likely he's the one that has hit Hoseok while he was running. Hoseok can sense that he's an alpha and probably a leader of his pack, what makes the attacked wolf growl at him.

 

He hears steps and surprised, he looks around, only to realise that three more wolves have come and he's totally outnumbered now, although not all of them are alphas. There is a beta and an omega, to his surprise, but he doesn't pay it any further attention. Baring his fangs he growls again, eyeing the white wolf in front of him dangerously. He knows he's not able to deal with them but the distance is too big between him and his pack so they won't be able to read his mind. Howling also isn't a good idea now.

 

It's probably the first time in many years that Hoseok regrets going out so late alone.

 

Probably having already discussed everything, the wolves are about to attack and he knows it. He waits for it, ready to fight back, when finally the first wolf throws himself at him. Soon the next two wolves follow, leaving only the leader and the omega, who's sitting beside him, to observe the fight.

 

Everything seems to be blurry and Hoseok isn't sure what is actually happening. He feels, hears and sees how they try to injure him, bite him, and he does his best in protecting himself, at the same time making sure to harm them as well. Even if they are three and he's alone, Hoseok knows that he's stronger than them. If the leader doesn't join, he may even win with them and Hoseok tries harder. He tries to bite one wolf, successfully harming another one with his claws, when suddenly he feels a burning sensation as there are teeth sunk deeply in his side.

 

Hoseok gasps in shock and pain, as the burning worsens and the wolf that is biting him tries to make the injury even more serious but it doesn't last long when he finally snaps out of it. In spite of pain he turns and before the other can do anything else, Hoseok hits him with his paw, making sure to dig his claws in the other's flesh. Even if it's not enough to harm him badly, it's still a good distraction and the wolf releases Hoseok.

 

There's another bite on his leg and Hoseok lets out a pained whimper, trashing and trying to free himself, while the wolves still don't let him go. He slowly starts to lose, when suddenly all of it stops.

 

The alpha doesn't understand any of these when suddenly the wolves release him, distracted with their leader. Hoseok has no idea what it means but when they leave him, following the white wolf, he can't help but feel relieved. Even if it's weird he doesn't think of it, standing on his wobbly legs, tired and injured, panting heavily, as he slowly makes his way home.

 

He needs to warn Namjoon.

 

 

❃❃❃

 

 

When Taehyung wakes up in the morning he refuses to open his eyes, not wanting such a beautiful dream to end so soon. The talk, the stress before mating, the ceremony and finally the night, the first night with Yoongi when they mated, when they gave themselves to each other, he can't believe it was just a dream. It felt so real. And Taehyung doesn't want to wake up, he doesn't want to live in the reality where all of it is only awaiting for him now.

 

Still in his sleepy state, he tries to move but he can't. Firstly, because there is something stopping him. Secondly, because there is the sudden wave of pain that rushes through his body and Taehyung grimaces in discomfort, still not opening his eyes. He tries to turn but he can't, there's still something that stops him successfully, and Taehyung feels something inside him andㅡ

 

...inside?

 

Taehyung opens his eyes immediately when he hears a low groan behind him and he looks at the person. He regrets the sudden movement as his sore body screams that he should be more careful but the omega forgets about it soon, seeing where he is, with whom he is.

 

Yoongi and he are in the bed, with the alpha still sleeping. The older wolf has his arms wrapped tightly around Taehyung's waist and the omega guesses that's why he couldn't move the way he wanted. They're both naked and Taehyung is almost one hundred percent sure that the thing still buried deep in his hole is nothing else than Yoongi's member.

 

Taehyung is kind of lost and kind of surprised and he doesn't know what to do or think but the one thing he can't really deny is, he feels happy. Weird and happy as he closes his eyes again, placing his hand on Yoongi's one resting on his belly, as he caresses it gently. He knows he won't be able to fall asleep but he doesn't mind, feeling peaceful lying like this with his mate.

 

When he thinks that Yoongi is finally his mate he feels the warm feeling in his abdomen and he grins like an idiot, trying not to chuckle, even if he knows it's too little to disturb Yoongi's sleep.

 

He stays like this for another hour before he finally hears Yoongi's yawning. The older wolf moves slightly, still connected to the omega. When he opens his eyes and sees the younger's back he can't help but smile. He doesn't think at all before he starts showering Taehyung's back with kisses and the omega can't hold it any longer as his laughter fills the room. Although Yoongi is taken aback by such a reaction, he doesn't stop for the next minutes, Taehyung's laugh sounding like music to his ears.

 

"Good morning," he whispers against his skin when he stops finally, his hand caressing Taehyung's side. "Did you sleep well?"

 

"Yeah..." Taehyung tries to turn but Yoongi's member is successfully stopping him from doing that and Taehyung would probably groan in irritation if he weren't embarrassed knowing that Yoongi's penis is still inside him.

 

Even if he's deflowered, the omega's mind is still innocent.

 

Yoongi doesn't need to see Taehyung's face to know the omega is blushing and he chuckles, his hand never stopping caressing Taehyung. "I should probably pull out, shouldn't I?"

 

Taehyung nods, the red on his cheeks is a few shades darker now as he buries his face in the pillow. It doesn't matter what they did a few hours ago, Yoongi's words are still able to make him feel embarrassed. Yoongi only chuckles.

 

"It's okay, don't be so shy."

 

Taehyung only mutters something in response but it's muffled by the pillow. The alpha places his hand on Taehyung's hip before pulling out slowly, trying to be as gentle as possible. When he begins he feels Taehyung immediately stiffening and he massages the other's hip, placing a calming kiss on Taehyung's skin as he tries to be even slower.

 

When he's done he turns Taehyung gently to look at him. The omega bites his bottom lip, his face is flushed and Yoongi can't help but smile at the adorable view as he leans on to place a gentle kiss on his mate's lips. Taehyung immediately reacts, wrapping his arms around Yoongi as he opens his mouth for the alpha, welcoming him. Yoongi cups Taehyung's cheek, pressing a little more until Taehyung lets out quiet whimpers as their tongues meet and when his cock is itching uncomfortably Yoongi knows they should cut it here. Because if they continue he won't be able to stop and it wouldn't be good for Taehyung if they had sex again so soon, the boy is probably sore enough already.

 

When they part he looks at Taehyung, caressing his cheek lovingly and Taehyung is all shy again, being completely naked under Yoongi after doing not so innocent things with him before. Yoongi can't help but think how adorable the latter is. "Are you alright?"

 

Taehyung is slightly surprised and his expression shows it clearly to Yoongi. "Yes."

 

"Are you sore anywhere?"

 

Taehyung wants to deny but there's still the slight burn that he can feel in his butt and other parts of his body. And Taehyung knows that if he hid it and Yoongi found out that he had lied, the alpha wouldn't be happy at all. "A little."

 

He's embarrassed again. Yoongi has no idea if he will ever stop being embarrassed but to be honest, he doesn't want it to happen. It keeps Taehyung still innocent and adorable as he's this way and really, it's probably one of many traits of Taehyung that Yoongi adores.

 

"It's okay, don't worry about it and just rest, alright?" Taehyung nods, happy that instead of making fun of him Yoongi is understanding. Of course he knows that Yoongi wouldn't laugh at him for that but there's some part of him that is afraid that he will disappoint his mate or make something stupid. "I will be with you the whole time."

 

Although it wasn't suppose to mean anything big, the assurance made Taehyung feel slightly better as he relaxed, flashing Yoongi his rectangle smile. "Good."

 

"We will need to have a shower," Yoongi notices as he stands up. Taehyung is both too lazy and too tired to follow him and Yoongi understands it, of course. "Do you want me to clean you here orㅡ"

 

"I want to take a shower," Taehyung says quickly and confidently, not even wanting to imagine what Yoongi meant, as he attempts to get up but the pain in his lower back is really a little too much and Taehyung's expression doesn't fail to tell Yoongi this. The alpha lifts Taehyung making him blush at it. "What are you doing? I can walk, you know."

 

"Maybe, but I want to spoil you a little." Taehyung doesn't look convinced. "Come on, if you don't agree now I will probably never get the chance ever again."

 

"Okay." Taehyung really doesn't seem to be too happy with Yoongi's suggestion but once he hears the omega has agreed, the alpha carries his mate happily to the bathroom.

 

 

 

Half an hour after they left the shower, Taehyung finds himself back on the bed, lying on his stomach, letting Yoongi massage him. At first he was reluctant but Yoongi really wanted to do something for him after causing him pain (it turned out that Yoongi would blame himself for anything if it only meant that he would get whatever he wanted from Taehyung and no matter how many times Taehyung told him it was okay, Yoongi was too stubborn to listen) and eventually there was no way for Taehyung to say no. Although he regrets not doing it.

 

A soft knock in the door cuts the friendly, comforting silence between the mates. Yoongi groans quietly, careful that the person on the other side won't hear him, cursing Seokjin for coming at this time and ruining the lovely moment he had with Taehyung as he gets up and takes his robe. The beta doesn't need to see his nakedness. He feels slightly grumpy when he opens the door but soon it vanishes, replaced with surprise.

 

"Seokjin hyung told me to give you this." Jungkook is the one who visits them. Yoongi would have expected that if Seokjin couldn't come he would send the youngest one but still, he has expected their oldest member to come. Yoongi takes the tray with food from the beta, thanking him. "Do you need something else?"

 

"No, we're good." Yoongi can't help but frown. Jungkook behaves almost normally but Yoongi is observant and he knows that there's something bothering Jungkook.

 

Usually when the youngest member has problems Seokjin is the first to notice, telling Namjoon that there's something wrong and sending him to talk to the beta. But this time instead of doing it he sent him to Taehyung and Yoongi and the alpha has no idea whether he's overthinking everything or not, but there's just something strange about it.

 

"Kookie, wait," he says when he sees that the boy is about to leave the room.

 

Jungkook looks at Yoongi with surprised expression. Yoongi quickly puts down the tray and after smiling to a surprised and frowning Taehyung, who has this expression that demands knowing what's going on, he leaves with Jungkook.

 

"Okay, tell me what is wrong," is the first thing Yoongi says after closing the door to the room. Jungkook just looks at him surprised but soon he attempts to put on a mask, saying that he has no idea what Yoongi is talking about, which earns the alpha's exasperated grown. "Don't lie to me, I know something happened. You behave strange."

 

"It's really nothing, hyung."

 

"Jungkook." Yoongi eyes Jungkook carefully and Jungkook knows that he has no other option but to tell Yoongi. The alpha is too observant and he's not going to let others just lie to him. "There's surely something wrong, Seokjin sent you to us and you look as if there is something troubling you. What is it?"

 

"Hyung, I swearㅡ"

 

"What is it?"

 

The demanding tone leaves no place for discussion and Jungkook knows about it as he sighs. Yoongi will find out sooner or later and when he does, he will be mad at Jungkook for hiding it.

 

"Answer me." Yoongi doesn't care that his tone may be a little too strong. "Why Seokjin isn't here? Is there something wrong with Jimin?"

 

"No, it's not Jimin..."

 

"Then?"

 

"It's Hoseok hyung." Yoongi blinks, surprised. Firstly, he didn't expect there would be something wrong with Hoseok and secondly, Jungkook looks as if it is really serious. Yoongi has this unpleasant feeling in his stomach.

 

"What happened?"

 

Jungkook seems to hesitate and although Yoongi is impatient, he doesn't push him to answer this time. The beta seems to have a really hard time and Yoongi doesn't know what to think about it.

 

"Kookie?"

 

"Last night, it was very late, when Seokjin hyung woke us up," Jungkook says, shaken slightly and Yoongi waits, trying to be patient. "He told us that Jimin hyung couldn't sleep and thanks to that he heard it and told hyung andㅡ oh, nevermind, what I mean is, Hoseok hyung was attacked yesterday night."

 

"What?" Yoongi asks, totally surprised. Just yesterday the other alpha was on his and Taehyung's mating, could it really be that Hoseok was attacked in the short time between when Yoongi saw him on the ceremony and now? "How? What happened?!"

 

"We have no idea." Jungkook bites his bottom lip in worry. He's extremely concerned about his hyung and Yoongi can see it, he's worried too but he must know what happened. If Jungkook is like this then it was probably serious but hell, he knows Hoseok. He's a really strong wolf. "Hyungs found him in front of our house, he passed out before they saw him."

 

It makes no sense, really, but Yoongi knows that Hoseok isn’t one to search for troubles so if anything, troubles came to him. But could it really be that someone attacked Hoseok when he was still here?

 

“Is he awake now?”

 

“I don’t know. Seokjin hyung has gone to check on him several minutes ago.”

 

“Should I go there, does Namjoonㅡ”

 

“To be honest, he told me that I shouldn’t tell you and Taehyung hyung anything about it,” Jungkook says quietly. Now Yoongi knows why Jungkook was so reluctant in telling him about it. “He said that we shouldn’t trouble you.”

 

“What?” Yoongi can’t help but exclaim, anger rising in him. How can anyone think that they never should trouble him and Taehyung when something’s wrong with one of their pack members?

 

“It’s okay, Seokjin hyung says that it will be okay.” Jungkook tries to smile but the kid is just too innocent to be good at lying and Yoongi knows just how fake the grimace is. “When something changes, Seokjin hyung will certainly tell you. So don’t think about it, please.”

 

As much as Yoongi hates it, he nods. He knows that he really can do nothing about it, and even if he can be worried, it will just be no help in anything. So, deciding to listen probably for the first time in his life, he tells Jungkook to go back to his hyungs. Jungkook does as he’s told to, his whole appearance screaming how restless he is even when he wants to hide it and Yoongi can’t help but feel sorry for the boy.

 

“Jungkook?”

 

“Yes?” The boy looks at Yoongi with concern in his eyes and Yoongi sighs. Seriously, this kid is too young to be afraid and worried about others, yet he knows what a good heart he has.

 

“Don’t worry, everything will be alright. After all, Seokjin hyung told you this, didn’t he?”

 

Jungkook nods, attempting to smile once again, before he leaves.

 

 

 

“What’s wrong?”

 

Yoongi doesn’t really know what to tell Taehyung as he sees the omega’s furrowed eyebrows. He knows that when he finds out, the younger wolf will be all worried and it’s something that Yoongi doesn’t want to see. Taehyung should be careless, just like he was before, not overwhelmed by problems of others.

 

Suddenly, Yoongi understands why Namjoon decided not to tell them about that. At least, he understands why he didn’t want Taehyung to know, because he still thinks that no matter what, Yoongi as one of the oldest, and an alpha in addition, should know everything what’s going on. Taehyung is a totally different case.

 

Taehyung is just like Jungkook. They’re both the babies of the pack and there’s something about them that still keeps their innocence. The problem is, they were both forced to grow up a little faster than others. Both of them had not the best pasts, which ended up with being apart with their original packs. Even if Taehyung got to be with two of his brothers, Jungkook was alone when he joined them.

 

Jungkook was the only beta apart from Seokjin and everyone immediately started leaning on him a little too much, all because of stereotypes. Beta should be smart and helpful, have medical knowledge and support everyone. Because of who he was, he saw things that even some alphas would cringe at. On the other hand, Taehyung was older. So if Jungkook needed to be more of an adult than a child at such a young age, everyone expected Taehyung to be even better, to be there for Jungkook, to lead him since he was the one that understood him the best. The problem is, there were things that still Jungkook and Taehyung couldn’t understand.

 

It wasn’t always like this and the pack made sure not to put too much pressure on them. If Taehyung and Jungkook were meant to still be pups, they wanted them to be like this, and even if sometimes it wasn’t this easy because of everyone else, most of the times they managed. The pack was proud of this at least.

 

The problem of being an adult too fast was what bothered Yoongi and Namjoon probably as well when it came to the mating. Yoongi didn’t want to push Taehyung after knowing how much had already been expected from him. But Taehyung was too stubborn and all Yoongi can do now is just make sure to be a good mate, the one that will make sure Taehyung won’t regret his decision.

 

“What happened?” Taehyung asks, worried after Yoongi took such a long time to talk to Jungkook. “Hyung?”

 

“Nothiㅡ” Yoongi wants to lie but he knows he shouldn’t. Taehyung would be disappointed if he found out Yoongi lied to him about something like this, as he sighs, giving up. But he’s still not going to let Taehyung know exactly everything, it’s not like he should know what he knows after all. “Someone attacked Hoseok.”

 

“What?” Taehyung’s eyes widened in surprise but soon he calms down. It’s Hoseok after all, there’s nothing to worry about. Right? “Is he okay?”

 

“Of course he is. You know him, besides Seokjin hyung is with him and he says that it will be alright. Hoseok just decided to give us a slight heart attack but that’s because he’s a fucker.”

 

Taehyung furrows his eyebrows once again when he hears Yoongi’s words. “Language,” he says, not liking how much Yoongi curses at times.

 

“I’m sorry,” the alpha responds kissing Taehyung’s nose and the omega immediately brightens at it. Yoongi tries not to think that he has possibly lied to Taehyung, hoping that Hoseok is really a fucker that likes to make them panic a little too much.

 

 

❃❃❃

 

 

It turns out that Yoongi has been right. As Seokjin has found out, Hoseok’s injuries weren’t as serious as it seemed and in a few days most of it should heal but it doesn’t mean that the pack can relax. After hearing what Hoseok has told them, the situation is more serious than ever and no one feels at ease.

 

Namjoon doesn’t know what to do. It is so strange that a random pack decided to attack one of his members, it was even stranger that they let Hoseok go even if it seemed that they could do much worse. Hell, they would probably even kill him, and Namjoon is incredibly grateful it didn’t happen but still, it doesn’t explain anything.

 

He has made sure to be extra careful and it means two new rules: no leaving any member alone and no leaving house after twilight, and if it was necessary then they should be in groups of three at least. The only ones who know about it are Seokjin, Yoongi and Hoseok though, since Namjoon doesn’t want the youngest ones to know how serious the situation is and at the same time, the rules are easy to follow even if someone isn’t aware of them.

 

Another thing that has changed is their pack meetings, they happen less often and instead Namjoon talks to the oldest members more, not wanting the others to know what it’s about. At first it was fine but finally, someone could feel curious.

 

“Is there something wrong?”

 

Yoongi looks at Taehyung in puzzlement. It has been five days since they mated and at the same time, five days since Hoseok was attacked and Taehyung has already figured that there’s something about that, something what no one wants to talk about and everyone knows. Or at least, majority of the pack.

 

“Hyung?”

 

“There is nothing wrong.” Yoongi is quite impatient but it’s not because he’s annoyed or something like this, no. He just doesn’t want Taehyung to ask him that because he knows that if the omega gets too suspicious, it’s going to be hard to escape his questioning. And he really doesn’t want to worry his mate as he kisses Taehyung’s nose. “I’m just tired, that’s all.”

 

“Are you sure?” Taehyung asks, eyeing Yoongi carefully. There’s something in the alpha’s eyes and Taehyung isn’t sure what it means but something is telling him that things are probably more serious than the pack wants him to think they are. “Namjoon hyung has been talking a lot with you, what is it? Is he still grumpy because of our mating?”

 

Although it would be a good explanation, Yoongi knows that it would worry Taehyung as well. Of course the omega would want his brother and mate to get along. Besides, he doesn’t want to lie to Taehyung more than he needs to. “No, don’t worry about it. I swear it’s nothing.”

 

“No, there must be something.” Taehyung is really confident. “What is it? If it’s not about our mating, then it’s about Hoseok hyung, right?”

 

“No, Taeㅡ”

 

“What is it?!” Yoongi didn’t expect the sudden outburst as he looks at his omega, tears appearing in Taehyung’s eyes. “I know you’re lying to me and there’s something bothering the pack but you won’t tell me, as always.”

 

Yoongi feels guilty, incredibly guilty. He has never meant to make Taehyung cry and he hates seeing his mate in this state. He knows that the omega is stressed and he’s really not surprised but he doesn’t want Taehyung to think that there’s something what he hides from him. Apparently, he still does.

 

The alpha wraps his arms around Taehyung, holding him close to himself. He has expected Taehyung to be mad at him and try to break the grip but Taehyung just stands there, letting Yoongi embrace him. Taehyung doesn’t cry either in his frustration, there are tears falling freely from his eyes but he doesn’t sob. Yoongi doesn’t know what it may mean.

 

“You’re always like this,” Taehyung’s whisper breaks the silence between them. “I understand the whole deal about protecting me and Kookie and I’m not even mad because of it. It would be really hard to be mad at you all because everything that you want is just to make sure we’re alright.”

 

Yoongi tightens his grip on his mate, hoping that Taehyung will stop because to be honest, it frightens him. Taehyung being disappointed, angry and sad but not crying is really terrifying. The alpha knows his mate, Taehyung is always energetic and full of life and emotions but now he doesn’t let himself show any of them. If Yoongi were a stranger he would really have no idea what Taehyung feels.

 

“But hyung, please, I’m tired of this all. I don’t want to be unaware of anything what’s going on, if I have no idea what’s wrong then I’m even more worried because I’m not sure in what kind of danger the pack may be. In what kind of danger you may be.”

 

Now Yoongi feels like an asshole for making Taehyung feel that. He shouldn’t be worried and yet, that’s all Taehyung is doing, worrying about the pack and him.

 

“We have no idea what is going on.” He really doesn't know why he is telling Taehyung this but if he has already started, he will finish. “We’re not sure if they will want to attack any of us again, we don’t even know what they want. Probably our territory.”

 

“So what are we going to do?” Taehyung asks, his tears still on his cheeks and his brows furrowed as he looks at Yoongi with not only concern but also determination. As if he is determined to be part of the ones who should worry about the pack.

 

Yoongi flinches at the word ‘we’. He doesn’t like the idea of Taehyung thinking about pushing himself in some kind of danger because honestly, the alpha knows that if the younger had the opportunity, he would do that without the second thought.

 

“Nothing.” Taehyung’s eyes widen at that and he’s slightly disappointed. “All we can do is trying to be careful. That’s why I’m going to walk you to school tomorrow.”

 

If Taehyung didn’t look surprised before, he surely looks like this now.

 

“W-what?!”

 

“I told you, we need to be careful. And there is no way that I would let anything happen to you.” Taehyung looks even more taken aback at the thought and Yoongi frowns. “Is something wrong?”

 

“But we can’t!” Taehyung says almost panicking. “Everyone will see us together, they will come to conclusions and ourㅡ oh God, our scent, they will feel it and they, they will know that we’re mated! We can’t!”

 

Yoongi really doesn’t know whether he should laugh or not seeing Taehyung like this. “Taehyung, baby, what are you talking about? Of course they will know you’re mated even without seeing me, your scent has really changed. Other wolves will literally feel that you’re mated to someone.”

 

It hasn’t made Taehyung feel any better and Yoongi is really baffled. Was it wrong that they mated?

 

“Tae?”

 

“They won’t find it weird, will they?”

 

“What?”

 

“I know that I still haven’t finished school thus I’m really young but I’m imprinted so it wouldn’t be this weird for me to be mated to someone, would it?” Taehyung asks, making Yoongi really uncomfortable. What is he supposed to answer to that?

 

“Well, you’re of age and imprinted, as you’ve said. If you really want me and love me then of course no one would think it’s weird.”

 

“I love you.” Taehyung’s answer is almost immediate as he looks at Yoongi, seriousness in his eyes. “And I want you. I’m just worried if it’s okay but I guess it really is, right?”

 

Yoongi looks at Taehyung puzzled before shaking his head and chuckling. He didn’t need much, Taehyung really didn’t need much to turn from an ‘I’m done with protecting me’ Taehyung to the one who’s worried about his relationship’s reputation. Adorable.

 

“Of course not,” he promises, kissing Taehyung’s forehead.

 

(He really hates that he needs to almost stand on his toes to reach it when Taehyung doesn’t want to help him and lean on but if the omega decides not to mention it, he can totally live with this.)

 

“Hyung,” Taehyung suddenly asks, his voice curious and Yoongi furrows his eyebrows with no idea what he should expect. “How long does it last till our scent of mating disappears finally?”

 

“Mating? Three or four days.”

 

“Three or four? But it means that itㅡ”

 

“That it has already disappeared.” Now it’s Taehyung’s turn to look baffled as Yoongi finishes the sentence for him. “We can’t smell it but for other wolves it has really disappeared.”

 

“But you said that others will be able to feel we’re mated so howㅡ”

 

“It’s because wolves can sense when another one is bounded with someone.” Yoongi has no idea when he found out about it, for him it is this kind of knowledge that he has been born with. That’s why seeing that Taehyung doesn’t know about it makes him look silly again but it’s this kind of silly that Yoongi loves in him. “It’s not because of the smell.”

 

“Are you sure it’s only that?” Taehyung asks sceptically and Yoongi nods. It seems it’s not the end of questions but there’s something stopping the omega from asking another one.

 

“If you want to ask me something else, you know you can,” Yoongi says hoping it will help Taehyung somehow and it seems it does help.

 

“Okay, so,” Taehyung starts, hoping that Yoongi won’t judge. He has no idea how he would survive if his mate judged him. “How long does the scent last after having another one… you know…”

 

He looks uncomfortable and Yoongi frowns, showing Taehyung he doesn’t understand and the omega should speak a little clearer. On the other hand it makes Taehyung even more uneasy and he groans in frustration.

 

“I meant, when we another time… together…”

 

“Do you mean sex?”

 

Taehyung looks so poor and as if he was about to cry with his red face and Yoongi wonders if there will be really time when he stops being so shy about this topic. Still, the omega nods.

 

“It’s really short, and even if it doesn’t disappear this quickly it’s easy to cover the scent with something else.” He shrugs, trying to look as relaxed as possible so maybe Taehyung won’t be this stiff, when finally Yoongi has this weird thought. “And actually, why did you ask about it?”

 

Taehyung thinks his face is going to burn.

 

“I was just wondering,” he starts, stuttering at the beginning in his nervousness. “Since tomorrow I’m going to school for the first time after mating, and if the scent doesn’t last this long…”

 

He starts stuttering even more, speaking so quietly that Yoongi has problems with understanding him at times but he doesn’t need to hear much to understand, or at least suspect what Taehyung means. He shakes his head, not believing that this person is asking him about that, the same person that isn’t even able to say word ‘sex’.

 

“You liked our mating?” Yoongi asks, quite innocently as if he was talking about the weather, when he comes even closer to Taehyung, smirk on his lips and his hands finding their way on Taehyung’s hips. Taehyung looks like a tomato hearing his mate’s words but the worst thing is, he can’t even deny. “Do you want to repeat it?”

 

If Yoongi wasn’t eyeing Taehyung carefully he probably wouldn’t see the subtle nod of the other wolf. Yoongi smirks before he captures Taehyung’s lips without any warning, making the boy gasp in surprise.

 

When the first shock is gone, Taehyung closes his eyes, wrapping his arms around Yoongi and bringing him closer, wanting more as he parts his lips, welcoming his mate. Even he is surprised with himself but it’s not his fault that Yoongi feels so right, whatever they do, whether they kiss or do something more, the alpha feels always so right to him. As if it was a crime to be apart with him.

 

Taehyung doesn’t realise when Yoongi pushes him gently on the bed. Once Taehyung is sitting on the soft mattress, Yoongi still doesn’t let their lips apart, as he starts undressing the omega. Feeling the tender touch of familiar hands on himself Taehyung shivers, every spot that Yoongi touches is burning but it’s the positive kind of burning, yet unsatisfying. Taehyung wants more.

 

Yoongi caresses Taehyung’s body slowly, making sure that no part of his body will feel neglected. The lower his hands go, the lower he kisses, leaving Taehyung’s lips and moving to his neck and shoulders, letting the younger one moan and whimper in pleasure. When his mouth reach the particular spot, the one where he bit Taehyung when he claimed him, he pays more attention to it. After kissing it a few times Yoongi still doesn’t move anywhere else, letting his hot breath tease Taehyung’s skin.

 

Taehyung shivers when he feels Yoongi kissing that bite but when his mate suddenly stops moving completely, he doesn’t know what to expect. “Hyung?”

 

When he hears the younger one’s voice, Yoongi pulls out a little so he can see the omega’s face. He places his hands on Taehyung’s cheeks, cupping them, while he looks lovingly in his mate’s eyes. He smiles gently, and Taehyung smiles back.

 

“I love you,” Yoongi whispers. “And I’m happy you’re here with me. You have no idea how much you mean to me.”

 

The words have come out serious and it’s good, Yoongi wants Taehyung to know how serious he is about him. Taehyung places his hands on Yoongi’s, squeezing them. “I know, hyung. I love you too.”

 

They kiss once again, slowly and this time without opening their mouth. It’s just a simple and innocent kiss. Yoongi soon returns to showering Taehyung’s neck with kisses, still removing the omega’s clothes. When finally the last article of clothing is gone, he first caresses gently Taehyung’s hips before touching his penis finally. Taehyung’s member is already fully erected, precum leaking from it and Yoongi can’t help but think how cute it is that the whole sex thing is so new to him that his body gets excited so easily.

 

At first he starts stroking the manhood slowly and gently, earning Taehyung’s moans, as he moves lower with his kisses. He kisses all the way down, getting down on his knees, until finally he pecks the base of Taehyung’s cock. When the omega feels it he’s ready to cry. Now, that he knows what’s going to happen, he feels even more excited than he was during his first time, when Yoongi took his virginity.

 

Yoongi takes a while in kissing the penis before putting it in his mouth, making sure he won’t be rough so he wouldn’t accidentally hurt his mate. Taehyung lets out a loud moan, breathing heavily when Yoongi starts blowing him.

 

“Yoongi,” he pants, his hand touching Yoongi’s cheek as the alpha looks at him in the eyes. Once again, the omega feels so exposed to him, and the intensity of the glare makes him shiver in both fear and excitement. Once he sees that Taehyung still is hesitant, Yoongi sucks harder playing with Taehyung’s balls, helping him relax. “Yoongi, you don’t have… to…”

 

His words die in his throat when Yoongi sucks hard again, the pleasure is just too much for him. When Yoongi sees Taehyung’s finally relaxed he starts moving his head, doing his best to pleasure his mate. Taehyung isn’t able to keep his whimpers to himself as the whole room, if not the whole house, is filled with the sounds he’s making.

 

He feels the weird sensation in his stomach and he knows it, he has felt it the night he mated with Yoongi, right before he came and Taehyung can’t help but grip Yoongi’s hair with his shaking hands. His tears and even his droll are falling as he’s about to come.

 

“Yoongi,” he half moans, half screams. “I’m g-going toㅡ”

 

He doesn’t get to finish the sentence when the white substance ejaculates from his cock, all of it going straight to Yoongi’s mouth. The alpha waits till his mate is finished before swallowing everything, much to Taehyung’s surprise. When Yoongi sees his expression, he smiles caressing Taehyung’s cheek.

 

“Hyung,” Taehyung says, he’s red from embarrassment and even more, from excitement. Only now he realizes he hasn’t called him hyung while the alpha was blowing him. “You didn’t have toㅡ”

 

Before he is able to finish, Yoongi places his hand on Taehyung’s nape and pulls him to himself to kiss him gently. Taehyung stops talking, surprised, but as soon as the kiss came, so soon it finishes.

 

“I wanted to.” Yoongi smiles again. “Now, we need to have a shower and go to sleep.”

 

“What?” Taehyung asks, his eyes big as he’s taken aback. “But hyung, you also need to finish!” he says, looking at the visible bulge in Yoongi’s pants. Yoongi just laughs, shaking his head.

 

“It’s okay. It’s late and you have school tomorrow, you should go to sleep.”

 

“But hyungㅡ”

 

“Sleep.” Yoongi repeats, this time with the voice that doesn’t accept ‘no’ as an answer. “I wanted to do something for you tonight so I did and now, to make your mate happy, you can prepare yourself to sleep.”

 

“But I want to please you as well,” Taehyung mutters quietly. He doesn’t like the fact that it was only him who received the pleasure but he knows he can’t do anything if Yoongi doesn’t let him. “Hyung, pleaseㅡ”

 

“Taehyung. I told you something, don’t make me repeat it again.”

 

With that Taehyung knows that he won’t be able to pay back for that so he just leaves in disappointment, doing as he has been told to.

 

 

❃❃❃

 

 

“What?”

 

“I told you it would happen.”

 

“What?!”

 

“Don’t even pretend to be surprised!”

 

“WHAT?!”

 

Taehyung sighs, completely defeated. He has no idea how to make the whole school not to look at him because not only can everyone feel the mating, but also his self-proclaimed best friend screams the same word all the time, looking directly at him.

 

“Long story short,” Taehyung sighs as he starts telling the story. “We were imprinted but I was stupid and didn’t know, but he knew and tried to make me realize, but he failed, like, million times, but my brother finally told me, and we were awkward, but then started talking again, and then we were hanging out, and I knew I wanted to mate with him, and I told the pack, but he didn’t know, and when he found out he was mad and yelled, but then he agreed and then we told the pack, and almost everyone was happy, and then there was the mating and here I am telling you the same story for the seventh time and can you please close your mouth Byun Baekhyun?”

 

Baekhyun still looks at his friend, completely not knowing what to say, not even knowing what to believe and Taehyung feels kind of lost. He has never known Baekhyun would have such a reaction.

 

“Come on, Baekhyun,” Taehyung says, hoping that the latter will finally act normal. And Taehyung doesn’t believe he’s the one wanting it. “I told you about it before! Why are you like this now?”

 

“I was sure you joked,” Baekhyun says, still shocked. “Or lied, or anything. How can you be mated?”

 

“I’m mated because I was imprinted and I love him and he loves me?” Taehyung says, raising his brow, hoping it will make the situation a little bit clearer for his friend. “Do you understand now?”

 

“But mated? Holy shit, Taehyung, you’re young andㅡ”

 

“Well, happy to know that the one person who was done with my stupidity for not wanting to mate is being a dick now. Thanks Baek,” Taehyung says, totally exasperated, as he turns and goes through the school corridor, totally ignoring his friend and not caring he has just cursed. “Screw you.”

 

Taehyung doesn’t regret mating with Yoongi. Right now he only regrets not being smarter when it comes to choosing his friends.
